Religious Fear.

The leaders of our world religions are full of fear.
Fear of God.  Fear of evil.

This fear has been passed down from generation to generation by those who obey their superiors.

Most seem to see God as a rule maker.
And they assume that these rules are enforced with punishments and rewards.

They obey unquestioningly.

But they impose their fear on others by intimidation and force.

Fear begets fear.

So, rather than attacking them or threatening them, it is possible to feel sorry for them.
So tyrannized are they by fear.

We can pray for them to overcome their fear and see God's true nature which is merciful and compassionate.

God is not a punisher of men and women.
He does not judge us.
Therefore there can be no hell.
There is no Satan to fear.
No anger.  No wrath.

God is all good.

God is Love.
